Conjunto Chappottín y Sus Estrellas
Thursday, August 7, 2014 @ 7:00 PM
“… one of the most renowned Son bands in Cuba – Latin Pulse Music
Co-led by trumpeter/musical director Jesus Angel Chappotin Coto and percussionist/singer Miguel Cuni, Jr., Conjunto Chappottín has a rich, six decade long history as one of Cuba’s premier ensembles. The group was founded in the 1940s by the legendary Arsenio Rodriguez, an innovative bandleader who popularized the addition of reed and brass instruments over a traditional Cuban Son rhythm section, inspiring a new wave of high powered Latin and Latin-jazz ensembles throughout the ’50s and ’60s, now referred to as Salsa music. Coto and Cuni, themselves, are descendents of the band’s original leaders. This is the band’s first North American tour!
